St. Stephen Church Recognizes Ex-Offenders Moving Forward at Justice Weekend
September 7th & 8th was Justice Weekend at St. Stephen Church in Louisville, KY. Pastor Kevin Cosby recognized at each worship service a number of the ex-offenders who were present who have come through our advocacy partnerhip with the church.
Larry George (here with me) is one of five ex-offenders who regained his voting rights in June through our partnership with St. Stephen Church. Larry attended our voting rights/expungement workshop at St. Stephen in January. Since then, misdemeanors and felonies were expunged from his record, and his voting rights restored. Larry stepped out on faith, believed God, and used personal tenacity to regain his life back. Larry is now employed at Ford Motor Company. Praise the Lord! Larry George is asking for our prayers for staying power on the job as the transition has been challenging. Larry attends Sunday school and serves faithfully at St. Stephen Church in the Greeter's Ministry. We share his story so that you can see the power of God at work in men and women like Larry.
In all, we have assisted 32 former felons with restoration of voting rights, and some with criminal records expungements. They are not sitting on the premises but standing on the promises of God. Many of their testimonies can be found under the Blogs section of the Jesus Saves Social Network and on the Jesus Saves Ministries Blog.

Please Support Blessings In A Basket 2012
These are two of the baskets we donated to "Bar-Be-Que Under the Bridge to Feed the Homeless" on Labor Day. We could not have done this without your recent donations. This is the fourth year for Blessings In A Basket. We started out the first two years creating baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Last year, we expanded to creating baskets at Easter and at select events year-round. The majority of our Christ-centered baskets are for the homeless, and less fortunuate, those in half-way houses, and struggling with addiction. Some of our baskets, support nursing homes, single mothers, men's and women's ministries, and special birthdays. One of the ways you can help fill our Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets is by donating any of these items:
- Combs and Brushes
- Body wash
- Hand sanitizer
- Wash cloths
- Rain Ponchos
- Christian t-shirts (all sizes)
- **Bibles (We have found a special on Bibles, 1 case of 36 for $36, or $1.99 each.)
- Literature expanding salvation and how to be saved.
Thank you in advance for your generousity. Contact me through my inbox and I will pick up your items.
